Upcoming POV Community Screenings

by |

Our partners have already started hosting sneak previews of the upcoming POV season — 150 people came out last night to see My Perestroika at the Brooklyn Museum! A great Q&A followed the screening with filmmaker Robin Hessman and the Meyerson family, who are featured in the film.

Two of our fantastic community partners — Ephrata Public Library in Pennsylvania and the San Diego Public Library — will be hosting special sneak preview screenings of our entire season! They’ll begin with the first three films broadcasting in our 2011 season lineup.
